2016 "Tour Rain" Red Blend
Southern Oregon, OR
Leah Jørgensen Cellars
What we love
Sometimes you need an interesting wine of such purity, personality and historic roots to come along and throttle your senses into a state of elation. Such is the case with this terrific red wine. Drop all preconceived notions you may have about how this blend should taste and just trust us on this one. The intersection of thriving wild berry fruit, wild mountain herbs, and savory, floral complexity makes this one of the most profoundly interesting wines we’ve tried all year and we’re hopeful it is something which will exceed all expectations.
About this Wine
Inspired by mesmerizing obscure blends of the Loire Valley, but nurtured in the Oregon terroir, winemaker Leah Jørgensen lovingly calls this riveting red blend, “Tour Rain,” a play-on-words in honor of the celebrated Touraine appellation in France’s Loire Valley, near Paris. This “Loire-gon” wine is sustainably farmed, L.I.V.E. certified and is crafted with minimal intervention, delivering a wine that is full of life and the energy of its ancient soils.
- Somm fact: Somm tip: For a wine that makes sense in every situation, look no further; Gamay blends are the definition of versatile. They are refreshing, super smooth, and so much fun to drink. Serve slightly chilled and let it open in your glass (or decant for 30 minutes).
60% Cabernet Franc; 40% Gamay Noir
